Ancora una volta! One. More. Time.
I am committing myself to do a daily blog of our upcoming trip versus my tried-and-true travel blogue with high hopes that I'll be able to actually accomplish this feat! My nemesis is the little story-teller voice residing in the gray matter folds, constantly chattering a story line...not a brief synopsis hitting the coolest highlights, etc. Add to that the teacher voice in my head that rambles on about all the fabulously informative topics I could expound on in any given post. And then there's the wifi issue, along with the husband issue -- "Are you finished yet?? It's late!" -- and so, I often almost give up before I even get started. Meh.
But always (almost always) of the optimist bent, this time I will resonate with the verve of the Greek goddess of victory, Nike -- and the over-priced sneaker -- and Just Do It!!!
And so begins a teeny synopsis of the somewhat harried day-before-leaving as checklists and errands and checking over packing and double checking arrangements at home and so on and so forth eat up the day. The really awesome news is, however, that I actually (drummmmm roll) packed on Monday. Yes. Truth.
I'm still recovering from my own shock at this feat.
So see...maybe this blog will play out as I'm planning!
Won't ya come on along with us as we head to the motherland Italia for a week once again in dear Montepulciano attending Il Sasso language school, followed by a week still unplanned, going where the Tuscan vento might blow.
Andiamo con noi per un bel viaggio -- yee haw!
